For Disguised as a Squirrel? Oh, I can't take credit for that at all ... it's from some site about misheard lyrics that came up and just stuck with me because it's, well, memorable.

I don't think Saint has ever been the same for me after reading this one, courtesy of Fenario's little nephew: "Sure don't know what I'm goin for, But I'm gonna go for the hippo show ..."

Ahh i remember a thread here a few years back about misheard lyrics...i had a friend that used to think the lyrics were.." shoplifting for pocketbooks and watering the plants"!!!!! Maybe now Brother Esau may never be the same to you !!!

LOL. There are a few I misheard that I either consistently mishear from engrained habit or choose to keep mishearing at least some of the time because I like it my way, the audience is part of the music, and consequently I have the right:

Love is all around (TOO)
Hair so long he's got to callin it home (StSt)
False alarm, they only came to town (Passenger)
Where's the dark star (Lost Sailor)

Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky. It is called the Dog Star because it is in the constellation Canis Major near Orion. Thus the logo for Sirius/XM and why Sirius Black turns into a dog in the Harry Potter series.

In the intro to the GD lyrics book , hunter mentioned one of the reservations he had with publishing the lyrics, was that he likes the idea of "misheard lyrics ",
that sometimes, it makes things interesting . I wonder, has anyone else heard the lyrics from "West LA" as "Looking for a shadow ( instead of "chateau", 21 rooms, but one will do". The metaphoric, possibilities of looking to live in a shadow ( with 21 rooms ) I think might be even more interesting , Or make it , as some of my old friends would say, more "stoney ".

I once (and only once) auditioned to sing in a band; they wanted to do T. Rex's "Get It On"; we noted down the lyrics from a cassette of the song; all evening I sang "You're an untamed newt that's the truth with your cloak full of eagles". At least we got the cloakful of eagles bit right.

One of the best: "The ants are my friends they're blowin' in the wind".
